When you’re not around

Vivi top and Larry jeans

Summer time.. ahh sweet summer time, I wish you were here in my real life.. but you aren’t so while you are not I will enjoy the sunshine and summer fashions in Secondlife. {ViVi} released a sweet/ sexy top in July, the Ria silk and lace halter . Beautiful detailing and available in 8 fresh colors the Ria top includes system layer as well as multiple appliers giving you options to wear with your standard or mesh body. With appliers for Lolas, Wowmeh, Lena, Slink, as well as the versatile Omega system  you can enjoy this halter top with a lovely long black skirt in the evening or paired with shorts, jeans or miniskirt. I paired mine with a lace trimmed capri jeans , also applier clothing, from Larry Jeans.

 

EMOtions and DeeTaleZ

My hairstyle is one from EMO-tions that was released at this years Hair Fair, the event is over so you will now find this and the other styles at the store.

still waiting

Whilst I was standing at the shoreline trying to find a good pose someone wandered over to chat- I couldn’t resist the photo opportunity! I think that’s one of the highlights of shooting at different locations ( other than the gorgeous setting) the surprise encounters when you talk with someone you have never and may never meet again, but you enjoyed sharing a brief conversation with as you both enjoyed the scenery.

Post 1000 : time to celebrate and update

Serenity_Greg Slocombe 1000 10

I have been blogging since 2012, actually my first post was on the 30th of July so it is very fitting that I post this significant number on the 31st of July 2015. Over that time some things have changed – mesh clothing, hair and bodies being the biggest change, while others have stayed the same – my enjoyment of blogging, and my eclectic taste in clothing.

It has been an amazing experience and one I have learned a lot from. I have made new friends within Secondlife, discovered new favorite stores and consistently been in awe of the creators of Secondlife clothing, accessories, body enhancements. This blog has seen me explore my creative writing and experiment with new techniques for photography. A big thank you to those who have supported me and encouraged me over the last three years,  thanks also to the designers who have given me the opportunity to be part of their blogging teams. A special mention to my friend Greg Slocombe who shot this gorgeous photo for me, over the years Greg has inspired and taught me a lot about photography, he has featured in quite a few of my photos over the years and has taken even more for me.

While we were getting ready for this photo Greg suggested I do a look back post, identifying my 10 favourite blog posts, so without further ramble here’s the list.They are not ranked, they are not necessarily the posts that had the highest visits, they are chosen because of a special memory for me, a time of change or a favourite designer :

Wow what a wonderful trip down memory lane, of course I could have chosen twice as many of my favourite posts and still been wanting to add more.

This has been a refreshing process, over the last couple months as I have struggled with my energy and health my posts have become less frequent. I am not promising that I will be back to full speed blogging but I feel re-inspired about why I blog. Thanks for reading, and if you want to share in the comments about any of your favourite posts on my blog please do.

 

FF: This is not the end

Lily shivered as light snowflakes touched her skin, she didn’t know where she had thought they would arrive but she certainly wasn’t expecting a snow covered hillside. Ayla smiled at her friend and hurried towards the small tower, knocking on the door and calling out  in a language that Lily was unfamiliar with. The door opened and a small man appeared, he looked at Ayla, and then at Lily who was standing beside her, he nodded and Ayla smiled. The man opened the door wider and invited them inside.

a fond farewell

Over hot drinks Ayla and Lily explained about their travels while their host just nodded and listened.  He smiled at Lily, ” You have truly had a wonderful adventure but perhaps you are ready for some time of rest now?” Ayla sighed ” Oh yes, but I don’t know where I am and where I am going”. Ayla reached out and squeezed Lily’s hand gently ” We have arrived, if you are happy to stay here. Alphonse shall be your tutor and guardian until it is the time for you to leave, I won’t be able to stay here all of the time but I will come back and visit you” she explained.

As the sun set but the night had not yet begun there was a soft sound outside, barely audible yet Ayla rose and went to the door. Lily hurried after her and gasped in surprise to see a unicorn standing beside her friend. “It is time for me to leave, I am needed elsewhere for now” said Ayla. She hugged Lily to her, ” If you ever need me send  a message using the gifts you received on our travels together, I will be with you in an instant” and with that she waved farewell to Alphonse from atop the unicorn’s back before riding away down the hill. Lily stood there watching, although she knew she would be safe in her new home she would miss her friend who had almost come to feel like family. She wiped a tear from her cheek and reached for a handkerchief, curiously she felt a weight in her pocket, reaching in she withdrew the smooth stone that Ayla had carried. Alphonse moved closer ” Ahh, you are a lucky one ’tis a dragons egg . A magic gift for anyone fortunate enough to have one”. ” But this isn’t mine, it’s Ayla’s” protested Lily. “I think you will find” explained Alphonse kindly” that it is where it is meant to be, when it is needed next you will know what to do”.

Some years later….

A Queen calls

Queen Lilith paced restlessly, she had left the castle hurriedly and was now awaiting her closest confidante to help her work out her plan of action. With her husband dead and her daughter missing Lilith felt her family, her world, was falling apart. The door to the tower chamber opened and in shuffled a small man ” Lily my dear how wonderful to see you”. Lily hugged Alphonse to her trying to hold back the tears she explained what had happened. He listened intently and silently, then nodded ” Come child it is time” he motioned the Queen to follow him as he entered another room . Lily helped him move the paint easel smiling at the scene he had been working on, the peaceful scene calming her a moment as she remembered a long ago journey, suddenly she knew what she had to do.

Opening the cupboard concealed behind the curtain she withdrew her small leather satchel , taking it to the desk she removed each item with care.  A fine shell, a small seed and a silken fan were placed along the window ledge. She centred the small leather binder with fine paper and slender quill pen on the desk top, and began writing her message  pleading for help once more. On finishing her note she removed the chain from around her neck running her finger lightly over the engraved surface, meanwhile Alphonse brought over some sealing wax and a candle. After closing up the letter Lily dripped some melted wax onto the parchment pressing the ring down onto the soft surface to leave her official seal.Lily reached into the satchel once more, feeling the warm familiar weight she withdrew the magic dragon’s egg passing this and the letter to Alphonse she asked him to make the arrangements necessary to contact the one who had been able to help her in her greatest times of need.. Ayla.

 

End.


And so I have finally finished my tale based around the sims and items from Fantasy Faire, I know that the Faire finished months ago but our quest is ongoing . A quest to raise awareness of Cancer and to help fundraise for the foundations involved in supporting people dealing with Cancer, recovering from Cancer or dealing with the loss of a loved one due to Cancer.

I will post this now and add the other details a little later when I log back onto Secondlife.

FF: All roads lead here

Lily grabbed Ayla’s arm in alarm when she saw their location, high up in the air on a narrow wooden bridge overlooked by an enormous dragon. Ayla motioned her friend to move behind her as she reached for the slender weapon tucked at her belt, though a small blade it was an enchanted one with the potential for great power when called upon in times of danger. There was a movement at the other end of the bridge and a young woman approached them, ” Fear not ” she assured the travelers ” The dragon slumbers in a the deepest of sleeps and will not stir unless called upon by it’s mistress, my eldest sister. Come follow me she would like to meet you”.

yozakura lady 1

As she neared the end of the bridge another woman joined them ” This is my second eldest sister” , she explained before turning to her sibling. ” They have arrived ” she said excitedly, fluttering her fan about her as she almost danced towards the lit building . As Lily looked about them she noticed the bridges connected a series of floating islands , the largest of which appeared to be their destination. Lily was unsure whether it was a home or temple, but as Ayla seemed to have relaxed with the warm welcome.

Yozakura lady 2

Suddenly a door opened and out glided a lady in a full gown, she gracefully crossed the last bridge and held out her hands in welcome. Lily smiled as she was pulled into a gentle hug, the soft sweet scent of cherry blossom and the musical voice reassured her as they stood beneath the stony dragon’s watch. This regal lady was the guardian of the dragon , the peacekeeper of Yozakura and their host for the evening as she invited them to join her in her home. The small party entered the spacious home where they younger sisters presented a simple yet delicious meal of foods donated by the townspeople upon sunset. Lily watched as their host took time to personally thank each and every person for their gift whether large or small, pressing a few coins , a small gift or a blessing wherever they were needed.

Yozakura lady 3

After dining the one sister tidied away the meal whilst the other prepared the chambers for sleeping. Before retiring for the evening they all gathered on the upper balcony to watch the stars appear. In thanks for the hospitality Lily and Ayla shared tales of their travels and the many kind folk they had met upon their way, as Lily stifled a yawn Ayla explained their journey was nearing an end. Lily was surprised as she had no idea the purpose of their journey or their destination, she had felt secure and safe with Ayla and happy, happy to explore, happy to share stories and meet new people. She saddened at the thought of returning to the life she had lived before, where she couldn’t escape the sadness she felt at the passing of her mother. She rubbed her hand over her eyes,  pressing back the tears as she remembered how the illness overcame her mother’s sunny happy nature and how Lily’s world felt thrown into a cold turmoil. Ayla pulled Lily close to her stroking a gentle hand over her hair, ” Don’t worry my friend, everything will be ok. I know where we are going, it is not far to travel but perhaps we should get some rest now”.

In the morning after a light breakfast they made their farewells to the kind trio of sisters. Each pressed a small gift into Lily’s hand : a beautiful silk fan from the youngest, a small box of herbal tea from the middle sister and from the guardian a ring with a small dragon twined around the stem of a Lily flower. Lily carefully placed the gifts within her satchel and hugged each sister and turned to smile at Ayla, ” I’m ready” she said. ” So am I ” replied Ayla as she placed the portal stone on the flat of her hand, feeling the weight and warmth she smiled . A glimmering golden sphere appeared before them , growing in size to form a portal through which the two travelers stepped through knowing their journey was nearing it’s end.

Sn@tch some time away

snatch some time for yourself Sn@tch is one of those stores that I have always appreciated for a wide range of easy to wear casuals. As these come in packs you often get the same item in a range of colors or interesting patterns, I am thrilled that the newer items utilise huds reducing clutter is always a good thing so remember to delete those sizes you never wear- for me those are the XS and S, I love my curves. I also LOVE getting a bargain, so I always check out the regular shopping events with an eye out for the discounts, for example The Dressing Room and My Attic.  In this look both my dress and shoes are available at the current round of My Attic , along with a lot of other summer items for it’s cruise resort  theme.   Group gifts DeeTaleZ and Zuri Jewelry My hair is from Ison and one of my favorites from this year’s Hair Fair, which has just ended so remember to keep on eye out on group notices or check in main stores to see if items have arrived.

Don’t forget to detour to the mainstore afterwards as there is a different group gift available there! Now the other item isn’t strictly a free group gift if you aren’t already a regular shopper at DeeTaleZ, I am as I love their skins in a range of tones and lately wear them the most of all my favorite skin creators. The VIP group is by invite only so if you shop DeeTaleZ drop a notecard or IM to the owner and you will receive the invite. This group does cost to join but at the moment there are TWO skins available at the store for members of this group to enjoy .

Time for some more items that you can find at the current round of My Slink Obsession, and who can resist sexy lace lingerie – definitely not me! The Cleo lingerie from Lacuna includes a range of appliers as well as system layers so you do have a few options- as well as color choices of course.  Speaking of color choices I am wearing tone 2 of the Ramona skin and wow how  gorgeous the makeup options look. The hud has a range of different eye makeup and lipstick colors – easy to choose from no hunting for separate add ons.

I couldn’t resist playing around with the expressions on the Slink hud , I look more nervous than sexy so finished off with a more provocative pose courtesy of the two pages worth of sit choices on the Neo Baroque Chaise from Kaerri.

godesses and glam_001

I am struggling to achieve what I wish to in SL atm, my RL health and energy continues to impact largely. I have tentatively been advised that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a possibility, but continuing to eliminate a few other scenarios with tests. So my time in SL and my blog posts are both a little erratic at the moment. BUT I am not going to quit – just going to grab the moments I can and not push too hard, this means I NEED to work on letting go of guilt about not blogging as frequently as I did in the past. Once I get more control over my symptoms I will be better able to enjoy my RL and SL.

MSO: Swimwear session

Hopscotch @ MSO

 

It is definitely the summer edition of My SLink Obsession with swimsuits galore. The perfect way to show off the gorgeous skin that YS&YS has there in 5 gorgeous shades from Pale to Tanned, even with freckle options. I took these photos with the idea to create a look of the paper dolls from childhood, as you can see I am not an expert of Photo shopping my pictures but it was fun to mess around creating a different style of photo from my usual.

 

MiaMai @ MSO

My fun thick braid is a free item that you can get from the EMO-tions stand at the Hair Fair- once you can get in that is. The gift includes hair bases, multiple braids; over left shoulder, over right shoulder, straight down your back, and a male fit. Also included is the hat shown in the first photo.  This event is a fundraiser for Wigs for Kids with stores donating a % portion of each sale to the charity, check out the signs in each store for this information. Also scattered around the 4 sims are donation kiosks and special bandana displays which are 100% donation.

-FORZE- @ MSO

I actually photographed these several days ago now, but RL kept me busy and then my health has been shaking me around again. I’ve listed the swimsuits in the order that they are worn, but these aren’t the only great Slink compatible items available at My Slink Obsession.

Dreaming of the Nile

Serenity 7 7 15_Greg S

Something New Poses is at the Olala Event this month with a wonderful gacha series perfect for bringing out the dancer in you. Titled Dance of the Nile there are 5 single poses ( common ) and 1 rare couple pose, each play costs 30L. I will make sure I drop the SLurl for this event in with the details so you can go and try your luck.SN~ Dance of the Nile Gatcha

Luck was definitely on my side when I went to play the gachas at the recent 30L event, it only lasted a few days but it was worth a spin the gorgeous outfit I am wearing in the photo was from the Les encantades. I ended up with quite a few different colors of this set, skirt and top are separate so I could mix and match if I wanted to but I love the look.

Serenity 7 7 15_Greg S

I was also super lucky to grab my friend Greg so he could join me in shooting some photos, I used the area behind the Mirage store as the setting and as usual had an absolutely amazing time. Greg has a wonderful way of capturing photos with different lighting and angles, so I will be uploading a lot of the photos to my flickr page.

I had decided to wear my Lelutka mesh head and found the perfect makeup from Oceane. Know for her luscious vibrant colors for tattoo layer makeup I was thrilled to see how effectively this was translated into applier make up. My lipstick is from her Boho Thai collection while my eyes are enhanced with the stunning Jungle cat eyeshadow. Both collections are available as fatpacks or duo packs. The Boho Thai lipsticks are currently a Makeup Room exclusive : http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Flawless/131/134/28  while you will find the Jungle cat collection ( there are also lipsticks in this range ) at the Oceane mainstore : http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Oceanside%20dAlliez/197/241/22.

My fantastic new hairstyle is from EMO-tions and is now available at the On9 event while my jewelry , also by EMO-tions is at the main store. Slurl for the event and mainstore will be in the details.

You don’t bring me flowers anymore

KaTink - Coastal Living19 background, Something New Pose, Oddity clothing

I couldn’t resist giving this post a “tongue in cheek ” title when I saw this fun pose from Something New called Catfished. The catfish prop is included thank goodness because I don’t know where I would have found one otherwise and my only other choice would have been a bunch of flowers.. oh wait..nvm. Anyway the  Catfished pose and prop is available FREE at the Under the Sea Cart Sale + Treasure Hunt (July 1 – 31)  – I will include a SLurl in the details so you can go grab this pose and pick up a few others at virtually giveaway prices.

 

For my photo I wanted to show off some clothing from Oddity 3D, and because of that I got a little creative with my photo rather than invite a friend to join me this time. I used the background from a set called Coastal Living by KaTink.

 

Oddity- Patti shirt, Shameless short

Both the shirts and shorts worn in both of the photos in this post are from Oddity 3D and I was thrilled to learn something special about the two co-ordinating tops. The Bruce , poplin shirt for men was released a short while ago and to match we now have the Patti , poplin shirt for women – what I didn’t realize was that these were named for Bruce Springsteen and his wife Patti. Both of these shirts have huds allowing you to choose a main color for the shirt and match or contrast the cuffs. The Patti shirt also allows you to hide or show the cute little undertop ( which you color when you select the color for the shirt cuffs.

Speaking of new releases at Oddity 3D the men’s walk shorts are a great summer option and again so versatile with the color change hud. As a final fun feature of my photos both shoes worn were won through gachas, the women’s are the current offer at Pure Poison. If you are in the group wear your tag and you get one pair FREE ( free to join group too by the way) – this pair is no transfer, but if you pay the other machine 50L you can have another try and these are the usual transfer ones so you can gift or swap if you like. I was thrilled to win the fatpack rare, so gave my singles away.

The sneakers below are ones I purchased at a past Chapter 4 round through the Nikotin machine, they have an amazingly easy re-size system so they are very easy to wear for men or women.
